Body Mass Index (BMI) is a ratio of your height and weight. A BMI calculator helps you assess whether you are overweight or obese.
Obesity is often confused with being overweight. In both cases a persons’ weight is higher than what is healthy for their height, however obesity is defined as having too much body fat. Your BMI correlates the amount of body fat you are likely to have given your height and weight, but does not directly measure body fat. Therefore your BMI should be used only as a guide.
